Nicki Minaj Says ‘Ice Age’ Role Was Written Just for Her

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj will make her foray into Hollywood by lending one of her many voices to the 3D animated film Ice Age: Continental Drift alongside Jennifer Lopez, Queen Latifah, and Drake. In a new interview with MTV News, the rap diva explained how she landed the voice-over gig.

“The original role that I was up for I didn’t get,” she said in her British accent. “So I said, ‘Oh, OK, whatever.’ I was really mad, and the next thing you know, they called me and they said, ‘We wrote in a part just for you ’cause we really want you to be a part of this movie.’”

Minaj recorded two voices and left it up to the producers to decide which they preferred. “I just was screaming and so excited, and I went in and I had a blast. I did it as two different voices,” she added. “We’ll see what happens.”

Watch her interview backstage at the “Femme Fatale” tour stop in New Jersey.

    I wonder how British ppl feel about her accent. it doesnt even sound British. it sounds like a valley girl trying to sound like she is British. im guessing JLo got the role that she wanted since she is also new to the film.

    She’s so cute when she does her British accent! A friend that I went to school with used to do the same thing and they sound exactly the same. :-)
    Love her hair, yellow is her color.

    I just wish she can act like HERSELF for once in an interview! Nicki, I hate your current music but I would love to know who you really are so maybe I can draw myself to appreciate you. Everything just feels so forced and unnatural every time I see you or hear you speak. I would love to like you, but I’m so sick of the act. You never give me a genuine feeling.
